Pumpkin Coconut Soup

Nothing says Fall like a bowl of warm pumpkin soup! My toddler enjoyed helping me during every step of cooking this pumpkin coconut soup, from scooping the seeds out to eating the finished product. After roasting the pumpkin pieces in the oven, we blended it with coconut milk and vegetable broth. We used the seeds […]

Pumpkin Banana Bread

Fall is already almost upon us, and my little one and I are already having fun with pumpkin in the kitchen. We recently made this healthy pumpkin banana bread together using a ripe banana, pumpkin purée, coconut oil, whole wheat flour, milk and maple syrup to sweeten it up just a bit. It is always […]

Baby Ice with Cinnamon and Pumpkin

  When my kids turn one, they start to have a new sense of attitude towards food. They get pickier, which makes it harder to find things they want to eat. Ice cream is usually one of those foods that never gets turned away, but it’s also not the healthiest option. I discovered making ice […]

Veggie Puree

There is a real struggle with eating veggies. Now that I am responsible for feeding this tiny baby, I say to myself, “Am I feeding her right? Am I feeding her enough?” All I know is that I want my baby to be happy and healthy. And veggies make for healthy babies. That’s why I […]

Spiced Pumpkin Soup

Continuing my goal to try one new vegetarian recipe a week, I decided to try my hand at a special pumpkin soup! It’s quick to prepare, but totally hearty for those cold winter evenings when you can’t think of what to make for dinner. Serve with a crusty baguette and simple salad and spice it […]

Dear Pumpkin,

I think it’s time we talked. Starting at the end of August, I see signs of you everywhere. “Pumpkin Bread”…. “Pumpkin Spiced Ale”… “Pumpkin-Filled Pasta”… “Pumpkin-Flavored Pumpkin.” I’m going to just say it: there are some things that pumpkin has no business being in. Pasta is one of them. Beer is another. And no offense, […]

No-Bake Baby Bullet Cheesecake

As is the case with many New Englanders, fall is my favorite season! The cool and crisp nights, the colorful and crunchy leaves, the hay bales and scarecrows, the costumes and hayrides, and, most of all, the pumpkins and apples are just a slice of heaven here on Earth. The sights, the smells, and the […]

Pumpkin Walnut Cream Cheese

Halloween may be over, but pumpkin season is still in full swing! I love cooking with nutritious pumpkin, which works well in breads, pies, muffins, and hearty stews. One of my easiest—and most unexpected—pumpkin recipes is this quick and tasty cream cheese spread made with pumpkin puree that can be shared with kids as young […]

Coconut Pumpkin Purée

Who says Baby can’t have pumpkin pie? There is no reason your little guy or gal can’t experience one of my favorite Fall treats. Coconut milk adds a new twist to this Fall classic by giving it creaminess, more flavor, and it’s jam packed with manganese, which helps protect Baby against viruses and infection and […]
